House Takes Steps to Address Formula Shortage

Rep. Rosa DeLauro (D-CT), chair of the House Appropriations Committee, is introducing an emergency measure to address the ongoing nationwide baby formula shortage.

“The stories of mothers and fathers struggling to find formula and the images of empty store shelves are heartbreaking,” DeLauro said.

“Parents and caretakers across the country cannot wait – they need our support now. This bill takes important steps to restore supply in a safe and secure manner.” 

The measure would provide $28 million to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to bolster “the workforce focused on formula issues and [increase] FDA inspection staff,” DeLauro’s office said in a press release.

The funding would also help the FDA “acquire better data on the infant formula marketplace.”

    Why do we have to have “super funding” so our children may have formula ? Just stop providing it to the illegals when it deprives us. Is this some sort of “program” to get more funds into manufacturers ? How could this have happened ? Where are people’s brains ? Perhaps being “sat” on too much ??? I am so glad I am not raising children now. If I were and my child was denied formula I certainly would be WAY beyond upset at the reasons and people responsible.
